Which version of Flash Player are you using? See my troubleshooting section, I recommend either v10 RC, or v10 beta 1.
The version of Gecko Media Player in Hardy states it emulates Quictime v6, when really it should say v7. That oversight is fixed in the version found in the Intrepid repo. It's too risky to install that version in Hardy due to its dependencies.
How long have you had display issues with GNOME MPlayer? Have you checked my troubleshooting section for advice?
On this computer firefox is also refreshing the pluginreg.dat every time it restarts. So i also have the 'get the latest quicktime plugin.' issue with the mplayer gecko plugin.
Since not everybody seems to have this problem, i am guessing that there is a way you can turn the refreshing of the pluginreg.dat off. So the question is how could we do this? Sadly i am not a firefox guru, but if you are one and are reading this thread, it would be cool if you help us out
Firefox 2x never used to refresh it on every launch, which was actually a big pain, as you had to manually delete the pluginreg.dat file everytime you changed between audio/video browser plugins, or even just changed their settings.
I don't know if the new behaviour can be disabled, let me do some research.
for dedicate your time.

Gnome mplayer issue from first day.
This guide has fixed all of my DVD playback issues, and for that alone I am very happy.
In Firefox, I get the quicktime upgrade message and I also get a black screen for realplayer. When I update the .dat file as suggested, it refreshes and removes the line on Firefox start.
I am going to attempt to use realplayer for it's native files. I have no clue what I will do about the quicktime plug ins, I have been searching for hours to find a fix.
If I find one that works I will post here. Until then, if anyone has a fix, please post!
I have tried streaming from this website with both gecko-mediaplayer and mplayer and no luck. I keep getting a message that says that my WMP is out of date and that I need to upgrade. I used to be able to stream from this site last year using gutsy, but no more. It works fine in windows, but the PC I want you for this is linux only (no XP partition) so I have to make work using linux. Any ideas?
Okay, tried method three. Did not work at all for quicktime. For realplayer, mplayer opens, but does not play, or acts like it is playing and I get a blank screen, no sound.
I checked the add ons and disabled the Geko plug in.That fixed quicktime.
